Toyota Tj Cruiser concept - roomy SUV or tough van?

Unlike a conventional auto, the GR HV Sports concept uses LED clusters stacked on top of each other.

The GR HV Sports Concept will also be joined on the Tokyo stage with the TJ Cruiser concept, an urban off-roader that puts as much emphasis on being a workshorse as it does a plaything.

While we're unsure at this point whether this vehicle will even make production, Dr Johan Van Zyl, President and CEO of Toyota Motor Europe, announced at the Frankfurt motor show that the huge Japanese carmaker is intending on producing performance hybrid products that promise a more dynamic driving character.

The Toyota Tj Cruiser concept is making its world debut at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show and will be on display from October 25 onwards. Toyota finishes it all in matte black paint.

It seems highly unlikely this concept is anything more than an indication of Toyota's interest in using hybrid powertrains as performance aids as well as "Green" powertrains in the future, although perhaps the Targa top is a nod at something to come.

Toyota hasn't said anything about power numbers for the GR HV Sports, but we do have a few intriguing drivetrain details.

Adding to the fun is the ability to switch between 6-speed manual and automatic transmission modes. "Tj" stands for "toolbox" and "joy".

Among the Tj's van-like features are front and rear passenger seats that can be reclined totally flat, allowing objects up to 3 m (9.8 ft) long to be stored inside - these could include surfboards or bikes.
